Please feel free to leave me a comment and let me know what you think of this shot! It was a high ISO (800) and hence a bit grainy. I actually really like the way it turned out in black and white. The train approaching is the HPASSAG (Pasco, WA to Saginaw, TX) about a mile and a half north of the Westminster Mall.

Nice shot. Looks like the contrast was up to to highlight the whites in the picture. If you use photoshop you could sort of edit the headlights... just a bit. Also crop it to make it a Christmas card. But nice work.

I too like the way the black and white turned out. Forget about the grain the contrasts work and if the headlights were less intense it would be a classic shot.

That would make a nice Christmas card! Very nice!! I definitely need to come over to Denver in Winter one year to get some nice snow shots!

The atmosphere is terrific! To me, it looks a bit like some very old photographs, speak of the 10s an 20ies.

Yes indeed it was! Must have been moving between 30 and 35 MPH, if I were to guess.
